<p>The Fred Simon Gallery features the personal abstraction of Kim Reid Kuhn in her show, ‘The Sacraments of Domesticity’

The thirteen works by Omaha-based artist Kim Reid Kuhn currently on display at the Fred Simon Gallery (a great space tucked within the offices of the Nebraska Arts Council at 1004 Farnam) are rewarding to the eye in ways that are not easy to capture in prose. 

Formally inventive, whimsical, and psychologically involving all at the same time, Reid Kuhn’s images are made even more interesting by her clear desire to...

At first glance the latter seems to be the case for the Moving...

<p>Mirror mosaic installation by artist Ying Zhu in her show, 'Crumbs of Tenderness,' at Lied Gallery at Creighton University</p> ‘Mirror, Mirror’

Exploring the limits of material and reality is nothing new for Omaha installation artist Ying Zhu.  Her art embodies an ambiguous contravention of formal arrangements and interactions intermingled with abundant energy that ultimately creates its own language. 

Zhu’s new show, Crumbs of Tenderness, at the Lied Art Gallery show her experimentation with everyday objects and gives her art a rebellious freedom of...
